Take part in a fundraising skydive
by Natasha Young

DAREDEVILS can help raise money for a Birkdale care home this month, by jumping 10,000 feet in a tandem sky dive.

The charity Nugent Care is calling on residents to show their support for its Margaret Roper House facility, which provides care and accommodation for people from enduring mental health problems, by taking part in the challenge on July 2.

No experience is necessary for the event, being held at Lancaster airfield, as all training will be provided on the day and the jump itself will take place in tandem with a professional skydive instructor.

Fred Busgeeth, manager of Margaret Roper House, said: “We need at least 10 budding adventurists to take part in this experience of a lifetime, so that we can provide enjoyable life experiences to our residents including day trips and a weekend away which many of the people we care for don't get the chance to experience.”

Participating fundraisers will need to collect a minimum sponsorship of £395.

The closing date for applications is April 22, and participating fundraisers will need to collect a minimum sponsorship of £395.

Call Ian on 0151 261 4498 for an information pack from Nugent Care.
